I'm using a the black Logitech MOMO FF that I had for years, mostly on GTR2, never tried any other wheel, I'm more of a casual Racer, don't have much time but this game is really fun to drive. Is there a better middle of the pack wheel out there that justifies getting a new one to replace the MOMO? Also the MOMO feels very stiff, I'm using Jack's files which are great. Thanks.

Well I was going to recommend the DFGT however on Amazon.com the G27 is actually cheaper than the DFGT, I know both of these wheels are slightly above your budget (at $240 ish and $230 ish respectively) but they are both great wheels that easily justify the slightly higher price. I've had a DFGT for nearing five years and had no issues with it whatsoever! :) I dare say the G27 will be the same if not better :)

There's some used DFGT's on Ebay averaging $149.00 shipped, just don't know if I trust getting a used one. Thanks

If it is from a seller with a high reputation then I'd say go for it :) Just make sure you read the description and when you receive it make sure it is as advertised :)

Spend the money on the G27s if the price is close to each other....the pedals on the DFGT are HORRIBLE.

I've had my g27 for more than 5 years and it's seen more than it's share of use, mostly iracing daily.....still going strong.

I echo badkarma's sentiment. G27 makes DFGT look like a toy in every single way. So much more value to be had with the G27.

I am using a buddys DFGT because he upgraded to the G27. So like everyone else said, get a G27. If the price is close of course. I don't mind the DFGT but I am also upgrading because it's just not enough for me. No clutch or 6 speed shifter. I want options. Hahaha

Just looked on Amazon and amazingly the G27 is actually cheaper then the DFGT.

The cheapest wheel you may try is the Logitech MOMO FFB wheel. I have it for 10 years and still works like a charm, no issues whatsoever, no dead zones, no decaying parts. I know its technology is considered obsolete, but for an entry level wheel it is perfect, and it is proved to be extremely durable. I'm only replacing it because I want to raise my simracing experience to a new level and go into serious online racing.

Looks like the G27 it is, momo has been good for many years too, just never had any other wheel to compare it too. Perhaps I can get a few bucks for it, thanks guys.

For that prize I can recommend a used G27, I got mine for 150 , you won't get anything better for that prize. If you don't want to buy anything used, the Logitech DFGT will just do fine ;)

The G27 will do you fine :) Enjoy playing Project CARS with it!

For just a bit more, you can get the Fanatec CSR bundle for $249, wheel/pedals. Way superior to the G27.
